Man Charged With Taking Indecent Liberties With 3 Children

A Johnston County man was arrested this week on allegations he took indecent liberties with three young girls.

The allegedly offenses occurred in July of this year but were not reported to authorities until September 20th.

Following a two month investigation, detectives with the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office have formally charged 45 year-old William Joe King of the 3900 block of Glendale Road, Kenly with four felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.

The victims in the case are 9, 11, and 14.

Additional details about the alleged crimes were not released because all the victims are minors.

King was placed in the Johnston County Jail this week under a $200,000 secured bond.
